Raptors Sign Camby

TORONTO () -- The Toronto Raptors signed former University of Massachusetts star center Marcus Camby, the second overall pick in the National Basketball Association draft, to a three-year deal Tuesday, the club announced.


"I'm relieved to get it over with," said Camby after signing the $8.4 million contract, the maximum allowed under the NBA's new rookie salary cap.


Camby averaged 20.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.9 blocks per game last season for top-ranked Massachusetts. He swept all the National Player of the Year awards as a junior after leading UMass to a 35-2 record and the school's first-ever trip to the NCAA Final Four.
